What Are The National Average Roof Replacement Costs?
The national averages for roof replacement prices will depend first and foremost on the kind of roofing material that is used. As of the time of writing in early 2019, the average range ran from $250 per square up to $750. The size of the roof was often the second most influential factor.
Only Replace A Roof In These Conditions
A roof replacement would happen only if repairs couldn’t extend the life of the roof any longer, as repairs are typically far cheaper, since they don’t cover the whole roof at once. If roofing gets installed, then it’s measured as well as priced in ‘squares’. That’s not to be confused with square footage, as one roofing square is equal to 100 square-foot blocks.
Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common residential roofs. An average 2,200 square-foot home will typically need 3,500 square feet of roofing material, meaning 35 squares. Other kinds of roofing materials, like metal, are more expensive.
Replacement Labor Costs & How They Play A Role
Labor costs will vary based on hourly rates and how many people are needed for the job. Some simple roofs only need a small crew and three business days. More advanced layouts might mean five people and take up to a whole week. Labor rates are very dependent upon cost of living and other factors in your local economy, but they still don’t usually stray too far from the national averages.
